Chris Janson Shows Off New Album Cover & Performs “Good Vibes” on “Jimmy Kimmel” [Watch]

The always-energetic Chris Janson dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Aug. 7 to perform his good-timin’ new single, “Good Vibes,” and show off the cover art to his upcoming album, Real Friends.

Penned by Chris, Ashley Gorley and Zach Crowel, “Good Vibes” is the lead single from Chris’ upcoming third studio album, which is slated to drop on Oct. 18. The positive tune, with verses like “I’m breathing on God’s time, and I ain’t gonna waste one breath,” is currently No. 23 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

Real Friends is my favorite album I’ve made yet, hands down,” says Chris. “I made Real Friends with actual real friends. I produced the album with real friends, wrote all the songs with real friends, took all the photos for the project with my best friend and wife, Kelly, and I also have a huge collaboration on this album with one of my favorite ‘Ole’ friends! I’m more excited about music now than I have been in all of my career. Thank you to my fans, who truly are my real friends and helped me get where I am today.”

The “Ole” friend is likely a reference to Blake Shelton.

In addition to “Good Vibes,” Chris has dropped two more songs from the upcoming album: “Waitin’ On 5” and, most recently, “Say About Me.” Currently, Chris is on the road with Chris Young as part of his Raised On Country Tour.

“When we wake up in the morning, we have the choice to be in a good mood or a bad mood,” says Chris. “I believe we can change the world with a smile, a good attitude and a timeless message about being kind to everyone. That’s what ‘Good Vibes’ is all about!”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
